This is awesome footage of Pictured Rocks! There is even a great sweep of the Mighty Mac, or Mackinac Bridge the gateway to the Upper Peninsula.
The UP is a gem in the lower 48 states.
Raw and wild you will experience nature and her many moods on any given day. The changing of the seasons creates a never-ending kaleidoscope of perspective here. The warm summer breeze embraces you and the sharp bitter winter wind creates stunning ice sculptures in the cold weather. Perhaps the most magnificent time to visit is autumn. The fall color is spectacular in contrast to the brilliant blue of the water. The sheer size of Lake Superior allows you to experience the sense of infinity as the horizon melts into the sky. Keep looking up and you might see the majestic symbol of our nation, the bald eagle.
The Pictured Rocks Boat Cruise is an excellent way to see the magical shoreline. In the winter snowshoes, snowmobiles and cross country skis provide access. Kayaking or paddle boarding is also popular for the more adventurous. Backpacking, hiking or camping the world’s largest freshwater inland sea is something to be experienced and savored.
